Architecture+Design Film Festival: Brasília: Life After Design

Sat, Apr 21 / 7 pm
Directed by Bart Simpson
2017, Canada / Brazil / UK, 88 min

Introduced by Director Bart Simpson.

Conceived in the 1950s by Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa, the city of Brasilia was envisioned as a rationalist utopia, a new capital representing the aspirations of a forward-looking country. But how well can such an experimental city accommodate the organic and often messy interminglings of urban living? This is the question posed by the film as it follows three of the city’s denizens as they navigate life.

The Architecture+Design Film Festival (adff.ca) is co-presented by the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation and Cinematheque and is sponsored by Canada Council, Manitoba Association of Architects, University of Manitoba and Urban Idea.

Sponsored by  Crosier Kilgour.

Reviews

Bart Simpson offers a visually stunning and refined portrait of Brasilia. The film is filled with gorgeous panoramic views of the city. The filmmaker captures Brasilia’s obsession for eccentric geometrical shapes and impeccable symmetry, offering a wide range of shots of its most marvelous constructions. Simpson demonstrates the simplicity and genius of Brasilia’s architecture, while personalizing the city through conversing with its residents.
